We are pleased to announce that Steam Cloud support has been added to Driver Fusion Premium. All your settings are now automatically synchronized if you start Driver Fusion. Other files, such as driver backups, are not synchronized due to their size and the Steam Cloud size limitations.

Steam Cloud should be automatically enabled the next time you log into Steam (you may have to log out and log back in for the update to take place). If you want to adjust the Steam Cloud settings, go to your Library, right click Driver Fusion Premium, and select properties. Under the Updates tab, there should be a section for Steam Cloud (if there is not, log out of Steam and log back in). Mark the box if you want to enable Steam Cloud Saves or leave it unmarked if you want to disable Steam Cloud synchronization.

We also enabled Steam Cloud support for the Driver Fusion demo, which shares the Steam Cloud data with Driver Fusion Premium to make it easier to upgrade to Driver Fusion Premium.
